Navigating the world of orthodontics can sometimes feel like walking through a maze with many turns and choices to consider. One of the frequent questions we hear from dental professionals is: “Is my patient’s malocclusion a good fit for aligners?” We understand the importance of this decision, not just for the dentist but also for the patient who’s excited about the possibility of straightening their teeth without traditional braces.

Understanding Malocclusion

Before diving deep, let’s touch upon what malocclusion means. In layman’s terms, malocclusion is when the teeth don’t align properly. There are various types of malocclusions – overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, and more. Each of these presents its own set of challenges when it comes to treatment.

Why Aligners?

Aligners have become a popular choice because they are nearly invisible, removable, and often more comfortable than traditional braces. But they’re not suitable for every type of malocclusion. The degree and type of misalignment play a crucial role in determining whether aligners are the right choice.
